International artist Anike Joyce Sadiq at LdM Florence

In conversation with Fine Arts Prof. Justin Thompson, the artist will discuss her work and relationship with spaces, context and the public.

Young, successful, and with a brand new “2015 Villa Romana Prize” in the pocket: at LdM Florence we are very pleased to welcome to our premises international artist Anike Joyce Sadiq!

Winning the Villa Romana Prize, the oldest German art prize which has been awarded since 1905, is just one of the many accomplishments of Sadiq. The young artist, known among other things for the videos, interventions and performances she uses to create zones of social contact and through which she discusses practices of alienation and exclusion, will pay a special visit to LdM to present her work to our students, in conversation with LdM Prof. Thompson.
Besides the use of art as an exploration of social dialogue, Sadiq will also talk about her working process and the relationship she has with spaces, context and the public, after which an open forum for student dialogue will follow.

Moderating the event will be LdM Fine Arts Prof. Justin Randolph Thompson, who as a sculptor and new media artist has exhibited internationally and participated in numerous residencies in the US and in Europe.

When?           Wednesday, April 8 from 3pm to 4.15pm

Where?          Auditorium San Jacopo in Campo Corbolini, via Faenza 43, Florence
